Hi Silver can experts...
I am trying to run in a siver can using some of the methods described so far in this thread and I'm not sure if I have done something wrong
, or is the motor a dud
or is it a champ in the making.
I ran it in one race straight from the box, and it wasnt as good as the motor it was supposed to be replacing, so it went back in the box, and now i'm just trying to get it to run in...
problem is that it is drawing so many amps (over 10) that it shuts down my charger (Supernova Competition on the motor run in facility), when I set it to 3v or more.
The silver can I was replacing only draws about 1.3 amps on 3v.
So I have been running it on 1v for about 3 hours dry, and 3 hours in a glass of water.
At the moment it draws about 3amps on 1v, dry. Unfortuantly I dont have any way of measuring torque or RPMs.
I am nervous about just trying it in my car, because I dont want to blow up the ESC if the motor is going to draw too much current.
thoughts and suggestions please...
